ESSENTIALLY, FOUR THINGS....
- Diagnose (always)
- Provide answers, advice, support and guidance
- Create and manage healthcare teams for our patients
Depending on the condition(s) present, Dr. Tennant may or may not be the one best suited to perform the treatment(s)/procedure(s). Most "diseases" have a multifactorial nature and often occur in groups. It is sometimes best to have more than one provider.
CONDITIONS WE COMMONLY SEE OR TREAT...
Many of our patients have failed treatment at other facilities and most are referred from other providers.
Conditions range from non painful TMJ popping to something life threatening. Most common are the many "TMJ" disorders, the many forms of headache, sleep apnea, bite problems, nerve pain, burning mouth, neck disorders, after-effects of facial trauma and whiplash.
SOME OF THE TREATMENTS WE USE...
- Medical interventions.
- Oral appliances. For TMJ or sleep apnea.
- Sleep Medicine.
- Nutrition, lifestyle and exercise enhancements.
- Therapeutic injections including botox.
- Physical Medicine.
- Mental approaches, mindfulness, psychology.
- Dental interventions.
It is unusual for a patient to have only one diagnosis/event occuring in isolation that can be permanently solved with one product or intervention. More commonly, a patient's condition is due to several events occuring together which influence each other. These usually require several simultaneous approaches to achieve long-lasting optimum health and sustainable results.
